Torimaru Ramen

Torimaru Ramen is an unassuming two-man run ramen shop, located upstairs in the International Village’s food court. They’re right next to P&D Store.


We dropped in on an early Monday evening (5:45pm). Service was friendly and cheerful.


The menu is short and sweet with four ramen options ($10.80 to $11.80) and takoyaki.

Minced garlic – they give you a complimentary side of minced raw garlic to add into your bowl.

Black ramen ($11.80)
UntitledWhite and creamy chicken soup with roasted black garlic oil, pork chashu, ajitama egg, green onion and bamboo shoots. Noodles were solid, a touch firm, which I liked. Broth wasn’t heavy, rather light and a touch creamy. Liked the addition of the bamboo shoots.

Shoyu ramen ($10.80)
UntitledChintan (clear soup base) with the same toppings. Had a spoonful of the broth. Decent but I prefered the chicken broth.

Can’t beat the prices. TR’s a perfect spot to grab a light, quick bowl of ramen.
